Prophecy loves signs from the heavens, and they will deliver Tuesday night with a moonlight spectacle.
Was Mike McClellan’s commentary piece, “The Lost Art of Civil Discourse,” a joke? I am asking seriously. Because how could it have possibly been for real? “The Lost Art of Civil Discourse” immediately followed his piece titled “The Latest Cause for the Crazies is Common Core.” Yes, that really happened. In one commentary McClellan calls names. In his very next commentary, he lectures us that we shouldn’t call names.
“To cover-up past global warming foretell, the Environmental Protection Agency, and leading Democrats, are now calling the late wicked winter snowstorms and cold weather extremes across the Midwest and Northeast ‘climate change’ caused by humans.”
Republican gubernatorial hopeful Al Melvin is using quotes from Abe Lincoln in his running fight with President Obama and his policies.
"I got the best bargain — this book,” I said. “No, you didn’t. Look at this Coach purse,” my daughter said.
It would benefit the U.S. Postal Service in the long run if they’d ceased nickel and dime-ing the customers to death — a penny here and a penny there which is just plain aggravating. It would be more practical making the rate hike to the nearest five cents, be it $.50 or $.55, and leave it at that. The increase overall to the individual is so small, one wouldn’t really notice. Just keeping up with inflation and no different than grocery shopping where few count pennies.
WASHINGTON — All summer, thousands of visitors traipse among the U.S. Capitol's many statues, which honor the nation's founders, leaders and legends.
Sen. John McCain is both a passionate and pragmatic elected official. Both sides of him were on display Tuesday at the Mesa Arts Center.
Walking past via the breezeway outside, you might poke your head in, scan the room briefly, and decide to move on — but, oh, the things you would miss. Like, say, Abraham Lincoln’s original signature. Or two lead bullets that collided in air during a volley between Union and Confederate soldiers at Gettysburg. The items are part of “Documenting War: The Kinnaman Collection,” an exhibition on display at Gilbert Historical Museum. Though it takes up just a single room (and a waist-high case in a hallway), it packs a punch.

“I can’t believe I’m in the same room in Gilbert, Arizona, with Abraham Lincoln’s signature and Thomas Jefferson’s signature. It’s crazy,” says museum volunteer Cathy Schnaze.
She manned the exhibition the day I looked around, noting weighty items such as the signatures of Patrick Henry, James Madison, Robert E. Lee, George S. Patton, Winston Churchill and even Adolf Hitler, and more everyday things, like a ceramic gingerbeer (like rootbeer) bottle from the Civil War era or a tiny, weathered Catholic Mass book found in the hand of dead French soldier during World War I.
The items, somewhere between 200 and 300 in number, are only a fraction of what Gilbert’s Gary Kinnaman, retired senior pastor of Word of Grace Church, has collected over the years. [More on next slide ...]
Given its penchant for taking local audiences back into their past on a monthly basis, Cult Classics’ decision to celebrate its second anniversary with a film about time travel and a tie to its East Valley home was both logical and a most excellent thing to do.
Since its earliest days, the United States has been a great experiment, testing whether a free people are capable of governing themselves through law, without the need of a king or dictator. King George III of England was the first of a long line of skeptics extending to this day, a line which includes the secessionists who triggered the American Civil War, and, most recently, NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
GETTYSBURG, Pa. — The commemoration of this year's milestone anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg will include amenities that soldiers would have relished 150 years ago.
An offbeat almost-artifact tied to one of our nation’s most iconic figures is coming to Mesa.
I can’t think of a country that doesn’t have something like Memorial Day. Whether democratic or totalitarian or anything in between, national honors are paid annually to those who have given their lives for their countries.
“Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
America’s sixteenth president is currently visiting the East Valley. Chandler Hamilton Library is featuring “Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times,” an exhibit on display through May 3 that celebrates the life and leadership of Lincoln. The exhibit was created by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
If you watch the trailer for “Renoir” – a new period drama from French filmmaker Gilles Bourdos – a variety of adjectives are bound to come to mind: conventional, humdrum, lackluster. Sure, they’re trying to sell the story of one of the all-time great painters in a mere two minutes, but nothing about it grabs your attention – let alone, compels you to sit through the actual film. Luckily, this is not exactly the case for the movie itself, which is exquisite to look at but unfortunately devoid of any real insight into Pierre-Auguste Renoir. You come wishing to learn about the artist and his work, but instead leave dwelling on the film’s more engaging supporting characters.
By the time you read this, I hope to have been part of the preservation of a piece of Arizona history. As I write, I’m filled with pride, because whenever you get involved with history, you hope that someday, people yet unborn can learn from it.
In many respects, the Oscars feel like a sporting event as nominees tirelessly campaign to win and award analyzers place bets on which horse will cross the finish line. Even a loyal Oscar viewer such as myself is bound to make several incorrect predictions come Oscar Sunday. Regardless, I’m going to do my best to forecast who will be taking home the awards on Feb. 24.
